We describe a method for docking a ligand into a protein receptor while allowing flexibility of the protein binding site. The method employs a multistep procedure that begins with the generation of protein and ligand conformations. An initial placement of the ligand is then performed by computing binding site hotspots. This initial placement is followed by(More)
Generating a pharmacophore is often the first step towards understanding the interactions between a receptor and a ligand and can be pivotal to a successful drug discovery project. The pharmacophore tools at Accelrys have been used to assist in many different projects over the years, such as lead generation, scaffold hopping, mining ligand databases as well(More)
This study provides results from two case studies involving the application of the HypoGenRefine algorithm within Catalyst for the automated generation of excluded volume from ligand information alone. A limitation of pharmacophore feature hypothesis alone is that activity prediction is based purely on the presence and arrangement of pharmacophoric(More)
Respinomycin D is a member of the anthracycline family of antitumour antibiotics that interact with double stranded DNA through intercalation. The clinical agents daunomycin and doxorubicin are the most well-studied of this class but have a relatively simple molecular architecture in which the pendant daunosamine sugar resides in the DNA minor groove.(More)
